Conditions to Treat with Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Generally speaking, there are many benefits of minimally invasive spine surgery when compared to open spine surgery. This is something we discussed in a recent blog post, touching on everything from the increased safety to the faster recovery time.

Before you can take advantage of minimally invasive spine surgery, you must first learn if you are a candidate for this type of procedure.

First things first, not every type of spine condition can be treated in this manner. Fortunately, advanced medical technology has changed things for the better.

These are just a few of the conditions that can be treated using minimally invasive spine surgery:

·      Herniated disc

·      Degenerative disc disease

·      Spinal instability

·      Spinal deformities

·      Lumbar spinal stenosis

·      Compression fractures

If you’re suffering from one of these conditions, you no longer have to live a life of pain. Furthermore, you don’t have to come to grips with the fact that you’ll be faced with a long hospital stay and many months of recovery.
